The kidnapped village head from Daura, President Buhari’s hometown who was snatched at gunpoint shortly after the Islamic evening prayers has breathed the air of freedom in Kano after two months as a captive of kidnappers.
Alhaji Musa Umar, is the father-in-law to President Buhari’s ADC.
Report emerged on Tuesday morning through Channels Television, quoting a security source within the Presidency who craved anonymity as disclosing that Umar was rescued in Kano.
Umar, who is the Magajin Garin (Village Head) of President Muhamammadu Buhari’s hometown, Daura, was abducted at about 7pm on May 1, 2019 in his Daura residence, Katsina North, shortly after observing Maghrib prayer.
How the kidnappers managed to evade the horde of security forces on the 136 kilometer long road that takes about 2 hours and 18 minutes to travel by the fastest route still remains a subject of intense speculation in Katsina State as a whole. The state is under the jackboot of kidnappers currently, with both the high and mighty living in fear.
